    Twitter Launches Its First Official App For Windows 8 And RT

    Twitter just launched its first app for Windows 8 and Windows RT. It’s been a long time coming, but the new app does seem to do the platform justice, with a number of Windows 8-centric features, including support for the Windows 8 Share and Search charms, snap view (so you can park the app on the side of the screen), live tiles and notifications.

    Acer Wisely Shelves Windows RT Tablet Launch Until Q2 2013

    Hope you weren’t waiting for an Acer Windows RT tablet. The company is not releasing its offering until later next year. Originally, Acer was going to launch Windows RT tablets in the first quarter of 2013, but the company is wisely going to sit on the sidelines a bit and watch the market’s reaction to other WinRT tabs — most notable the Microsoft Surface.
